Welcome to 80/20 @ Kaelins. A new take on the classic restaurant where the cheeseburger was created. A neighborhood spot where anyone is welcome. Bring your family and friends and join us. A great place to watch a game or enjoy some family time. Featuring burgers and classic comfort food and drinks. Try out the 80/20 Malt Shoppe for some house made ice cream or a shake with your burger. Maybe relax on a porch swing for a bit. Grab a bourbon or local brew to enjoy at the indoor/outdoor bar. Have an evening relaxing on our large patio. Maybe throw a party in one of our private dining areas where we can offer custom menus from casual to upscale.
We would love for you to join us. And we look forward to taking care of you.
Thanks,
80/20 @ Kaelins

    This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. My husband ordered the ribeye burger/medium and I had the classic cheeseburger/well. My husband was concerned that his burger may come out pink. It wasn’t. He said it was perfectly cooked as was mine. Be warned-the ribeye burger is messy…make sure to get extra napkins. The fries were good too. We ordered the big Lebowski and Betty White. Both are alcoholic beverages and they were fantastic! Can’t wait to go back. I’m getting the big Lebowski for myself next time!

    Went there for burger week. BEST burger I have ever had and the appetizers and sides were wonderful as well. We finished the meal with some ice cream which was oh so yummy. The service was prompt and attentive. My only complaint were the chairs. If you have any size on you, the chairs are going to be uncomfortable. Parking was crazy too, but that's just because their food is so darn good.

    First I grew up eating at the original Karlins so I was expecting a similar experience. My family was back in Louisbille and thought we would try the new Karlins. The place was so noisy that you could not converse with others at the same table. We were seated at a table where the A/C blew right on us. Asked if the A/C could be turned down and we’re told no. It was most uncomfortable. Further the place has the ambiance of a bus station. We almost got up and left and wished we had. Most of our party ordered the original Karlins cheeseburger. What a disappointment, burgers were cold and had too much brown mustard. Meat was cooked to much and had little flavor. The whole experience was a disappointment and we could not wait to leave. Will not be coming back.
